We love ours, they are well built and the customer service has been great with answering questions. Not a bad price, I would email him a low ball # since he does say OBO

It would be a tight fit for a Mini (they are 11 ft. 11 inches in length). They also weigh 2900 lbs. which I suspect would overpower that lift gate. I'm looking for a garage unit to hold a Mini and have been told 13 ft. is required for the garage- some felt 14 ft. better. Almost all responding to my posts and emails agreed dual rear axels were needed. That's what I've been told... the only thing I know first hand is the Mini.
